Nationals' Williams: Anthony Rendon 'making good progress'
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:33 pm ET) Nationals second baseman Anthony Rendon is scheduled to play nine innings at second base with Double-A Harrisburg on Tuesday, MASNSports.com reports.

"He's scheduled to play nine again," Williams said. "Came out of the last one fine. Depending on rain and how the weather is then, he's scheduled for that today."

Williams didn't have a timetable for Rendon's return to the active roster but said the second baseman is progressing.

"I think he's making good progress," Williams said. "The fact that he's played those games and had no issue. Had a really good work day, we were fortunate to get his work done yesterday before the rain came. Had no problem with it and was eager to get back is a good sign. The fact that he's feeling good is a positive for us."

Rendon has yet to make his season debut due to knee and oblique injuries.


David Wright's status could affect Daniel Murphy's position
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:20 pm ET) Mets infielder Daniel Murphy has remained mostly at second base while third baseman David Wright has been sidelined, and manager Terry Collins spoke Tuesday on the decision to keep Murphy at second while Ruben Tejada has manned third base in recent games.

"You're talking about a guy we've already danced him around twice," Collins said of Murphy, per The Star-Ledger. "Put him there, now moving him back to second base again. He's established himself as a second baseman here. I just don't think you take one of your best players – who, right now, is swinging a bat as well as he did – and add another dimension to his game. Let him be comfortable. You guys can handle anything. These guys, they like to know what's going on."

Collins did acknowledge that Murphy could be shifted to third base once the team has more clarity on the outlook of Wright, who is expected to rejoin the team on Tuesday. The Mets hope to know more about the timetable related with the third baseman's back injury soon.

"We've got to see where David's going to be," Collins said. "Is he going to be 10 days, two weeks, two months – I don't know. If it's going to be a lengthy period of time we'll certainly revisit what our best alignment is. Right now, I don't like moving guys around. I think they should come and know where they're playing and get ready to play there. Because you gotta include Dan Murphy. I think Dan Murphy is the best third baseman on this team outside of David Wright. We gotta re-evaluate where we are and that will not be determined until we know what David's status is going to be."


Report: Dodgers OF Scott Van Slyke going to DL; Heisey recalled
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(1:14 pm ET) Dodgers outfielder Scott Van Slyke has reportedly been placed on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday. Van Slyke was diagnosed with inflammation in his mid-back area, according to the Los Angeles Times. 

Van Slyke missed a few games last week due to the injury, but was able to return to the lineup on Saturday. It appears, however, that the 28-year-old is not at 100-percent. He is batting .264 in 87 at bats this season.

The team is calling up fellow outfielder Chris Heisey from Triple-A to take Van Slyke's spot on the 25-man roster.


Dodgers RF Andre Ethier sits against lefty in Game 1 of DH
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:37 pm ET) Dodgers right fielder Andre Ethier is out of the lineup for Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Rockies. The Dodgers are facing a left-hander for the firs game, and despite the fact that Ethier is hitting an even .300 (6 for 20) against southpaws this season, he has just three hits in 22 career at-bats against Jorge De La Rosa, who starts for the Rockies.

So, Ethier will take a seat in favor of Chris Heisey who gets the start in right field and bats second in the twibill opener. Ethier has hit safely in nine of his last 10 games. 


Dodgers C Austin Barnes makes rare start in Game 1 of DH
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:25 pm ET) Dodgers rookie catcher Austin Barnes is getting just his second start of the year in Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Rockies. Barnes, who has just three plate appearances since being promoted from Triple-A on May 24, is batting eighth in manager Don Mattingly's lineup.

With the Dodgers currently carrying three backstops, A.J. Ellis and Yasmani Grandal are able to get the first game of the twinbill off to rest. 


Dodgers shortstop Jimmy Rollins sits for Game 1 of doubleheader
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:20 pm ET) Dodgers shortstop Jimmy Rollins is not in the lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Rockies. Rollins had started each of the last 10 games for Los Angeles, hitting .250 (10 for 40) with a pair of home runs in that span. 

Rollins will be replaced by Enrique Hernandez, who starts at shortstop and bats seventh in Game 1. With no injury being reported, Rollins is likely just getting rest and should be back in there for the second game on Tuesday.


Rockies C Nick Hundley sits for Game 1 of Tuesday's DH
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:15 pm ET) Rockies catcher Nick Hundley is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against Dodgers. Hundley is hitless over his last nine at-bats, so he'll sit out the first game with Michael McKenry getting the start behind the plate. Hundley should be back in there for the nightcap.

Rockies 1B/OF Ben Paulsen able to start in Game 1 of DH
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:11 pm ET) Rockies first baseman/outfielder Ben Paulsen is in the lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Dodgers. Paulsen was forced to exit Sunday's game and did not start on Monday due to a migrane.

But Paulsen was able to enter Monday's game as a late-inning defensive replacement and appears good to go for Tuesday's game one. He is starting at first base and batting fifth.


Rockies SS Troy Tulowitzki out for first game of twinbill
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:07 pm ET) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki is not in the lineup for the first game of a doubleheader against the Dodgers on Tuesday. Tulowitzki did not play on Sunday either, but he is batting .375 (9 for 24) over his last seven games.

Daniel Descalso is getting the start at shortstop for game one. Tulowitzki should be back in there for the nightcap.


Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa gets the ball on Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:03 pm ET) Rockies left-hander Jorge De La Rosa has been confirmed as the starting pitcher for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Dodgers. De La Rosa missed his last two starts due to a cut on his finger, but as expected, he'll be on the mound Tuesday.

The veteran southpaw last pitched May 21 against the Phillies. He got touched for three runs on six hits in 4 1/3 innings. Through is career, he is 6-10 with a 5.48 ERA in 23 games against the Dodgers.
